Horizontal Stripes - Faux Pas?

...I think not.

Hi all,

I've been away from blogging for a while now, I have to learn to be a little more consistent.
I have however been keeping myself quite busy sewing throughout the summer.

I went shopping the other day and saw a simple tank dress but I couldn't bring myself to buy it. I have to work on my giant stash and don't need any RTW items that I know I can make myself. So I went home drafted the pattern and recreated it. The fabric is a polyester knit I got from Fabricland for $2/m.

The peek-a-boo black is the lining which I should have understitched.

Trying to show my beaded sandals...I love them.

I love how the vertical stripe insert gives the illusion of an hourglass.

I've decided I don't care what the experts say...I am a big girl and I like horizontal stripes.
